Correcting Kindle E-Books on the Fly

Correcting Kindle E-Books on the Fly

A few months back I bought Brian Tracy’s Eat That Frog–a great book about beating procrastination that I cited in a recent Fast Company video–on my Kindle. Today I got an interesting email from Amazon. To quote: We’re writing about your recent Kindle purchase of Eat That Frog!: 21 Great Ways to Stop Procrastinating and Get More Done in Less Time by Brian Tracy. The version you received contained some errors that have been corrected. An updated version of...

Mozilla just approved my latest update to the Better Gmail 2 Firefox extension, which now includes the ability to hide your unread Buzz count, and enable an audio notification when you receive new mail.

“The Swype package you installed does not match the screen size”

“The Swype package you installed does not match the screen size”

If you tried out the excellent (and unofficial) Swype beta for your Nexus One–the keyboard replacement that makes touch-typing much easier–you may be getting an annoying popup about how the Swype package you installed doesn’t match the screen size. I love Swype so much I’ve been putting up with the error for weeks, constantly dismissing it. Turns out a better version for N1 users kills the error. I uninstalled my error-prone version and installed this one yesterday;...

Microsoft Outlook Social Connector

Microsoft Outlook Social Connector

With Google’s plans to include Buzz in Google Apps for enterprise customers, Microsoft needs a way to get social media into Outlook, and the Outlook Social Connector add-on seems to be it. When Office 2010 ships–in the first half of this year–it will have support for Facebook, MySpace, Windows Live, but–oddly–not Twitter. Here’s my review of the current version, which integrates LinkedIn contacts and news feeds with Outlook 2003 and 2007 now: Microsoft...

Big! Exciting! News: ThinkTank Is Now at Expert Labs

Big! Exciting! News: ThinkTank Is Now at Expert Labs

I am thrilled to announce I’ve landed a pinch-me dream job: I’m now a Project Director at Expert Labs, the new non-profit headed up by Anil Dash. I’ll be in charge of developing ThinkTank. Here’s what happened. Last March I was thinking about buying a netbook, and asked my Twitter followers a question: Do you have a netbook? What do you love or hate about it? When I got back 243 informed opinions by savvy netbook owners, I knew I needed a way to easily parse and...

Once you’re active in Google Wave, you want to know if something new is happening there–even if you don’t have Wave open in your web browser. Several Wave notifier applications and browser add-ons can do the work of checking your Wave inbox for you, and letting you know you’ve got new and changed waves. The following is an excerpt from the all-new Chapter 9 of The Complete Guide to Google Wave. Got feedback? Let me know in the comments and help write the first...

Hackers Don’t Tinker Because They Got Invited

Hackers Don’t Tinker Because They Got Invited

Mark Pilgrim’s excellent exposition on the “tinkerer’s sunset” (an idea Alex Payne put forth in his iPad piece I linked earlier) got me thinking about the nature of tinkerers, and whether the iPad really represents a sunset for them. The optimist in me thinks it couldn’t even if it tried. First, know that I fundamentally agree with Alex and Mark: the closed nature of the iPad turns me off, and I wouldn’t give one to my kid if I were encouraging her...

Alex Payne on the iPad

Alex Payne on the iPad

“The iPad leaves me with the feeling that Apple’s interests and values going forward are deeply divergent from my own. The future of personal computing that the iPad shows us is both seductive and dystopian. It’s not a future I want to bring into my home.” al3x on the iPad. Read it.

iPad First Impressions

iPad First Impressions

Based solely on live blogs and a choppy audio feed: Terrible name, gorgeous device, great price point. I may be an Apple critic, but I’m not made of stone–this thing is beautiful. Instantly my Kindle seems like a joke. Kottke may be right: The Kindle app plus Instapaper installed on the iPad may very well be a much better reading and browsing experience than the Kindle itself, plus you get everything else it does. Here’s Apple’s official iPad page. And you? Continua...
